Learners make a poster that describes the four kinds of sentences. They write a sentence for each kind of sentence. Then they write short paragraphs about topics using the different kinds of sentences.
Read the first part of the handout with learners. Discuss what simple sentences are. Learners decide whether the words on the chart express a complete idea (simple sentence), or an incomplete idea (not a sentence).
Learners use FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) to join two simple sentences from the story to make a compound sentence.
